Criminology is the study of crime and criminality as well as society’s response to these.

The study of criminology gives you a deep insight into the theories of crime, justice and punishment, by drawing on multiple perspectives and disciplines. You’ll gain knowledge of how criminal justice agencies work and interact, how criminal justice policy is created, and how policing, courts and prisons present new and pressing challenges for today’s world.



These courses have not been running long enough for course specific data to be available. For this reason, we are showing data relating to the broader subject of Sociology.
